Nice for a while, but I would NOT recommend buying this now.

  • Summary: When it worked, it was pretty nice, but the Wi-Fi totally stopped working right after warranty was up. Without wi-fi this thing loses most of it's charm. Add the fact that there's no guarantee how long the recently bankrupt Kodak will keep the pulse service running, and it makes no sense to buy this device.

good device, but production & support have ended

Amazon

  • Summary: We were given a 10" Pulse as a 2011 holiday gift. We loved it. But after five months it failed, and we've had 3 months of wrangling with the company Kodak outsourced support to. Most recently, they told us that they couldn't fix it, and couldn't replace it because there were no more replacement units in their stock, or expected. After another several weeks and three rounds of paperwork, they are now in the process of refunding the purchase price to our daughter.

Add mine to the "dead" list...

  • Summary: Bought five months ago for my mom. Delightful at first, then came the dreaded White Screen of Doom. No fix for this, will have to send it back. Saw a few negative reviews initially but hoped that the kinks had been worked out. Guess not.

Seriously Disappointed

Carrie Gonzalez, Amazon

  • Summary: The problem with this frame is that you can't just play all the pictures you've loaded in a row... it randomizes the pictures which would be GREAT if most of the pictures got about the same amount of play or show time. But instead it seems to have picked about 15 pictures that are getting played over and over. And the other thousands of pictures are occasionally seen. I contacted Kodak through the "Chat with a live person" feature. Not sure you can call it a live person.

Important limitations

Boog, Amazon
26 June 2010
  • Summary: We've bought three of these for our parents and just discovered a major limitation: ADDING MEMORY DOES NOT EXPAND THE FRAME'S CAPACITY. So don't waste your money like we did in buying SD cards to go with the frame when sending it off to your parents. While the wireless setup is indeed extremely easy and the picture quality is great, the frame can not write to a memory card, it can only read from it.

  • Summary: I bought one of these for my mom for mother's day. I'm on my way now to return it. Unlike most WiFi devices, this frame can't connect to the Kodak server unless it's in the same room as my router. Worse yet, the WiFi functionality is completely dependent on Kodak's server. So, if their server is misbehaving, like today or they simply decide to take it offline, then the WiFi functionality is useless.
